Laguna's dancing foodpanda riders, who got nearly 10 million views for a single TikTok video, roped in their rivals from Grab for another feel-good version of "Ever After."
The SPC Dancing Riders' newest TikTok, posted by team leader Jomak Peladra, got nearly two million views in less than 24 hours.
It was also a Laguna-Batangas crossover as the Grab riders are based in Lipa City. The San Pablo City based foodpanda crew went viral last month for their "Ever After" dance with the branch manager of a local McDonald's.
"Magkaiba lang ang kulay ng uniporme pero iisa ang layunin , makapagpasaya at matugunan pangangailangan ng pamilya," Peladra replied to one of his followers, who teased them for an encore. They called it the "best collab ever."
"Babad na sa araw 'pag nag-deliver, babad pa rin sa araw 'pag nagsayaw. Ibang dedikasyon na 'yan, lodi! Respect!" a commenter said.
Another one praised them: "Ang sarap panoorin... walang halong competition."

The foodpanda riders found out about the Grab riders also via TikTok. According to Peladra, the group members were all dancers before they became riders during the pandemic.
"Bale sa TikTok lang po kami nagkakilala. Since magkalapit lang naman po kami ng bayan kaya tinuloy na po namin," he told reportr on Tuesday.
Peladra said more collaboration videos are in the works. As for the requests of followers for the group's visit to areas outside Laguna, he said "siyempre may kasunod po 'yun."
"Isa lang po realization namin sa ngayon: ang maging positibo pa rin kahit maraming problema dumating sa buhay, piliin palagi ang maging masaya."
In October 2020, big brands such as Coke and Pepsi, and McDonalds and Jollibee united in a commercial to encourage Filipinos to do their part in reviving the economy from the pandemic.
